Down Syndrome Queensland undertakes many events and activities to raise funds for our services and programs. Our major fundraising activity is Step Up for Down syndrome, where families and supporters combine in teams of various sizes to engage in a social walk while raising funds through peer-to-peer engagement. We are also supported by a number of parents who organise fundraising activities themselves.
Fundraise for us!
We are also more than happy to provide you with a fundraising kit to support your efforts.
Be part of the growing trend and take part in an active challenge. Challenge yourself, a friend, or create a team with a group of friends to compete in a run, cycle, swim, walk or climb, and raise funds to provide essential programs and services at Down Syndrome Queensland. We will motivate your fundraising with Down Syndrome Queensland merchandise to make you look great whilst competing in your event. Check out our Challenges page for more information.
